Biography

British experimental musician Alexander Tucker has been recording solo excursions in improvised guitar and tape loops since the early 2000s. His sound has grown exponentially in the years that followed, which found the artist branching out in directions as far reaching as Fahey-esque detuned guitar dirges or doom metal-informed ambient tones. Tucker got his start in the early '90s singing with various area hardcore bands including Unhome, who released one album and a split single with Papa M. When Unhome disbanded in 1999, Tucker briefly hopped on Detroit space rockers Füxa's U.K. tour, playing guitar synthesizers. In 2000, Tucker's self-titled solo album was released by Tom Greenwood of Jackie-O-M**********r on his U-Sound Archives label. Further years of performance and writing saw the raw experimental sound of this debut album refined some, and Tucker eventually signed a record deal with ATP Recordings. The label would release three albums of Tucker's eerie, fragile sounds over the next few years; 2005's Old Fog, the ghostly Furrowed Brow in 2006, and the much more traditionally structured Portal in 2008, which featured Tucker's first entwining of vocal harmonies with his doomy drones. Tucker toured and collaborated a great deal in this time, working with members of Sunn O))), Jackie-O M**********r, Duke Garwood, and Guapo. The start of 2008 found Tucker out on tour with labelmates F**k Buttons, as well as playing a slot on New York's ATP Festival. In April 2011, he released an even more song-based fifth album, Dorwytch, on new label Thrill Jockey, followed in 2012 by Third Mouth.
